Those requirements do NOT go together. Slow and small and trainer and carry a load, no way. Small planes fly quick relative to their size and do not carry weight. You want a fairly large trainer and then it will carry weight when you are ready. But as a recent beginner, I would suggest a foamie to fly while you build you first stick build, which can be quite challenging. You don't want to smash up something you spent so much time on. I think the Multiplex easycub is a great choice although there are others out there. I have a great 3 channel cub from HobbyKing that was $50 plus shipping and comes with motor, esc, and servos, that can fly fairly slow, but is fast on high throttle. It was my first plane. Not the best trainer but I had lots of stick time on the simulator and helis. What is your experience level?
